Waterman’s AutoRail system covers some 10,000 route miles of the Network Rail infrastructure.
The system has been in existence since British Rail days and has been under constant development and expansion. Balfour Beatty, Carillion, AMEC, Jarvis, AMEY, Atkins, Railtrack, Network Rail, Virgin, etc, have all bought into and funded much of the work completed to date, which is widely used throughout the rail industry.
The plans are used by various user groups within the rail industry, including design engineers, site engineers, possession planners and asset managers.
All the 5-mile plans are linked to each other, so that you can scroll along a route. Each plan is linked to a geographical map (click on a location on the map and it automatically finds the correct 5-mile plan). There is a search facility by ELR, station and junction name.
The scale diagrams include track, switches and crossovers, signals, gradient profile, curves, line speeds, access points, station platforms, bridges, viaducts, culverts, level crossings etc.
We receive various documents from Network Rail and our clients and update, develop and enhance the plans on a daily basis.
